Damian on The Glee Project 102
The homework assignment this week was incredibly enjoyable. There was a lot of energy about it and I had a lot of fun. I thought this week’s theme played to certain people's strengths more than others. But this is all about embracing the challenge and trying your best. We all worked incredibly hard this week. The routine for the video was quite tough and took a lot of work. It gave people like me a chance to sing Gaga, which, to be honest, I never thought I would be able to do.
It was incredible to meet Idina. She is such a loving and caring character and she gave great advice to each and every one of us. And let's face it, a lady with that much experience and achievement in her back pocket… you can' exactly take her advice lightly!!! Naturally, I was a little disappointed when I did not win the challenge, but Alex deserved it one million percent. He is the definition of theatricality when he performs. I would have been shocked had he not won it! My favourite part of the Music shoot was the costumes. They were incredible. After working really hard all week, getting your costume on adds that extra spice and that extra bit of excitement to the performance. My costume was incredible. Very rock and roll. My footwear stood out for me. I had fish in my heels, they were quiet amazing!!
I was ecstatic not to be in the bottom three this week. I was very close…again! But not being there gives me hope and I pray I will continue to improve. I’m going to work for this, and I am well aware that I have A LOT of work to do, probably more than anybody around me. I'm under pressure, but I will work to pull it off.
I was very surprised to see Matheus in the bottom three this week after having such a strong performance last week and after coming second in the Homework challenge this week. It certainly proved to be a shock and proves that no-one is safe; any lack of concentration or slacking and you’re in trouble.
I wasn't so surprised to see Elis and McKynleigh in the bottom three, though I did think Ellis' kiss may have saved her. As for McKynleigh, she didn’t seem to do as well this week. Like me last week, she seemed to fade into the background. I knew it would be between her and Ellis.
Ellis’ being there two weeks in a row certainly made it tougher, mentally, for her because she had to prove to Ryan again that she could do it and convince him to give her a third chance. But Elis has a great voice, and I am sure she is going places…
